How the state views our children

A California court has ordered a family to cease homeschooling two of it’s children and enroll them in a public school where they must attend, according to this report in worldnetdaily.com. This is a chilling development and just one more example of the fact that the state views our children as theirs — parents are neither qualified nor have the rightful authority to make decisions on behalf of their own children, according to state bureaucrats.

All states think they are the ones best suited to make decisions for our kids — California just happens to be the state acting on that conviction in this case. If this doesn’t bother you then perhaps you should review history just a bit. Another state took similar steps with regard to education in 1938 (it’s mentioned in the worldnetdaily article and in a previous thideology article).

It’s time America’s parents stood up and declared “we are the ones best suited to raise our children.” Christians, in particular, should be leading this charge as it is the biblical model.
